Cooking with Cricut # 9

There is a new challenge today over at Cooking With Cricut - to make a holiday creation with no red OR no green. You can use one color or the other, just not both. Fun, eh? Here is what I came up with:



Isn't it cute? I cut the card base out of Smiley Cards. I love their card feature. I cut the white circle out of George and Basic Shapes - sized to fit the card on my Gypsy. The stocking is from Doodlecharms - I have been loving using this cartridge. It is so easy to use with the hide contour function of my Gypsy! I can't remember where the stamp came from, but it is an acrylic stamp and came in a set with a number of other holiday sentiments. the paper is Stampin up and the ribbon is from Michael's.

This was a really easy card to make, and I think I could mass produce it pretty easily. I need to get cracking on my Christmas cards! It is getting so late!!
